The Ugly Truth: Our President is an Imbecile

You know it, I know it and the American people know it. But everyone is afraid to say it. They say it privately, but people are afraid of saying it publicly because you will be branded as a liberal, elite, intellectual snob. But believe me, you don't have to be an intellectual to see how painfully stupid our president is.

UPDATE: Same opinion, different writer. In the LA TIMES, Jonathan Chait asks, "Is Bush Still Too Dumb to Be President?" [Ed.: Still? When was he ever smart enough to be President?] Chait writes, " is now increasingly clear that Bush's status as non-rocket scientist is a serious problem. The problem is not his habit — savored by late-night comedians — of stumbling over multi-syllabic words. It is his shocking lack of intellectual curiosity." [Ed.: Not intellectually curious, or does he suffer from A.D.D.? I'm curious as to why this is just now news. "W's" recent lackluster performance at the G8 meetings may be the most recent example of this shortcoming, but his lack of curiousity is something that those of us in Texas have known all along. Did anyone in the national press look into his tenure as Texas governor? Stories abounded of his lack of intellectual curiousity, that his briefings were more for the others in the room. FYI — "W" also was well known for delegating EVERYTHING and surrounded himself with those who'd make the decisions for him, thus always providing him some plausible deniability should anything go wrong. Does that sound familiar? The "Decider?" What a joke! That's why Cheney is the perfect VP — "W" passes everything along to Cheney to handle. Cheney knew he'd never be elected President; he also knew that "W" would delegate all of the decisions to him, so that's why (as head of the committee to find a VP candidate) he nominated himself. None of this should be news to anyone paying attention.]
